The Workbench does not appear to process queries with Cyrillic characters correctly.

Here is the scenario to reproduce :

1/ Insert following triple using Sesame Workbench
<a:subject1> <a:has_title> "Μια φορά" .

2/ Verify that triple is stored correctly : verification passes OK - title is returned with correct encoding in Workbench

?subject <a:has_title> ?title
3/ Execute a regex query - which returns no results, which is the problem

?uuid <a:has_title> ?label.
FILTER regex(str(?label), "Μια φορά", "i") .

When doing this same experiment using the commandline console instead of workbench, the query returns the expected result - so this seems to indicate that the problem is in how the Workbench encoded the query.

As an aside: I should point out that I have tried the workaround solution mentioned here: for POST requests, but it made no difference.
